Here’s the story of Kellyane Conway/Who invented the phrase alternative facts/All of them based in lies just like their author/Never one would she retract. Here’s the story of George T Conway/Who was busy with key Tweets of his own/All of them support the Lincoln Project/To stop what she had sown. Til one day when this lady met this fellow/And he knew she was more than out to lunch/That this group must somehow form a family/That’s the way they all became The Shady Bunch. Or, as WaPo puts it: Kellyanne Conway, a senior adviser to President Trump and one of his longest-serving aides, is leaving the White House at the end of the month … Her husband, George T. Conway III, a conservative lawyer and outspoken critic of the president, is also stepping back from his role on the Lincoln Project, an outside group of Republicans devoted to defeating Trump in November. He will also take a hiatus from Twitter.” They’re both doing it for their family. That’s good for their kids. It’s probably good for my kids too. In many ways, the Conways are this era’s true American First Family; One parent going off the rails in a quest for fame and power at the expense of decency and democracy, the other parent trying to pull her back to the realm of reality via that intimate family communication tool known as Twitter, and their kids left to wonder how this broken generation could have left the family/country in tatters. In a way, Claudia Conway’s heartbreaking Tweets serve as a painful metaphor for the state of mind of many Americans. She can’t believe what her mother has helped to enable. I hope Claudia heals. I hope America does too. And I hope many of us follow the plan she outlined in her last Tweet: “this is becoming way too much so i am taking a mental health break from social media. see y’all soon.”
